Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are often asked how much compensation for head injuries in Burnley a person may be able to claim. On this page, we are going to take a little look. Remember, you will only be able to claim compensation if the injury occurred within the last three years and you can prove that the injuries were the fault of another person.
We offer no compensation guarantees
It is worth noting that there is no 100% accurate way in which we will be able to predict how much compensation for head injuries in Burnley you may be claiming. Now, it is highly likely that we will have dealt with similar cases to yours in the past. We will use these as a baseline for the amount of compensation you can claim. However, this information will be nothing more than a guide. No matter how similar a case may be in terms of facts, there will always be a small difference in facts which will have a huge impact on compensation entitlement.
Much of the compensation that you will be looking to claim will come under a heading known as ‘general compensation’. You may, however, want to think of it as compensation for the pain and suffering of being injured.
In order to determine how much general compensation you are entitled to, we will need access to your medical report. If you are not able to provide us with access to your medical report, you will not be able to claim a single penny in compensation. That is how important this file is! The more severe your injuries are, the more compensation you will be able to claim. Remember, you can claim for just about any injury out there providing it had an impact on your day to day life, but the amount of compensation you receive will be limited when it comes to fairly minor head injuries.
Financial loss compensation
If you are successful with your general compensation claim, you may also be able to claim for any financial losses that you have had to deal with as a result of your injuries. At Accident Advice Helpline, we will always do our best to help you to claim as much compensation as possible. Some of the financial losses that we will be able to help you to claim here:
- Compensation for time that you have had to take away from work due to your injuries.
- Compensation for medication or any treatment that you have had to undergo.
